New personal protective equipment (PPE) guidance for NHS teams

The UK government has published new guidance about personal protective equipment (PPE) for NHS teams who are likely to come into contact with patients with coronavirus.

The guidance has been agreed by the four chief medical officers, chief nursing officers and chief dental officers in the UK and is applicable in all parts of the UK. The updated guidance reflects the fact that coronavirus is now widespread in the community, meaning clinicians are more likely to see patients with the virus, some of whom may have minimal or no symptoms.
